March 18th: Update & New Jewelry

Hello! I realize that I have been gone from my studio for a while now, but my absence could not be avoided. Soon after my last post in February, I hurt my back. I have had issues with my sciatic nerve in the past, but that was years ago, so it was quite a surprise when it flared up after so long. About two weeks after the initial pain started, my back was better, thanks to a lot of rest and avoiding sitting in my studio chair where I have to sit up straight. Once my back was better, I worked on a few custom orders that I needed to get done and shipped out.

A few days later, I had a follow-up appointment with my surgeon, and it was determined that I needed surgery to fix an issue from a surgery I had back in November 2019. For those who have not noticed the links connecting you to my other blog, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in late February 2019. Two weeks ago today, I had my 5th surgery, and I am doing well! I am excited to see my surgeon again next week to remove any stubborn steri-strips that are still hanging on to my surgery site.

Today I finally felt well enough to get back into my studio and design a few pieces. It felt so good to be able to sit for a few hours and do what I love! I hope to work on a few more pieces tomorrow, and then I will list them in my online shop.

Thank you for your understanding and support! 💕

Valentine’s Day

Hello! I didn’t have an update for last week due to a few things. It was an emotional week for me, so it was hard to concentrate on making new jewelry. Instead, I focused on fine-tuning my new organizational system in my studio and ordering a few new items I needed to create a new type of jewelry that I will be designing next week. I am so excited to present a different kind of jewelry to you, and I hope you will love it as much as I do!

I will have another update, listings in my shop, and photos of some of my new items towards the end of next week, so be on the lookout!

Please note that next week I will be working on new items for Valentine’s Day in particular, so if you have any custom requests, please let me know by either emailing me at mary@mmillsdesigns.com or going to my Contact Me page on this website.

mmillsdesigns shop now open!

Welcome! I will update my progress on new items as well as new listings in my shop in my blog, so watch for updates in the coming weeks and months.

My website is finally fully functional and my shop is open! I only have the handmade jewelry section of my shop open at this time. I will be working on the other two sections in the coming weeks, my Destash Boutique and my Original Photography.

For those of you who not familiar with the term Destash, it is referring to the sale of crafting supplies. I have quite a few extra beads and supplies that I will be selling at a reasonable price in the coming months. I will have some individual items as well as a few bulk purchases available.

I will be working on new items for the jewelry section of my shop in the coming weeks and again, I will post updates in my blog.
